These video lessons accompany Chapter 8 (Fractals) from The Nature of Code book.
Fractals11 Aug 2015
This video introduces Fractals.
Fractal Recursion11 Aug 2015
This video looks at how to write functions in Processing that call themselves (recursion) for the purpose of drawing fractals.
Fractal Recursion with ArrayList of Objects (Koch Curve)11 Aug 2015
This video looks at how to use an ArrayList to store the parts of a fractal as separate objects. This allows a fractal to experience physics. The Koch curve is used as a demonstration.
Recursion with Transformations11 Aug 2015
This video looks at what happens when you need to translate() and rotate() in a recursive function. The class “branching tree” fractal is demonstrated.
L Systems11 Aug 2015
This video covers the basics of L-System algorithms and how they can be applied to “turtle graphics” drawing in Processing.
